Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 150 times as heavy as a Mouse
In other words, 742 fluid drams (ʒ) is 140 times the weight of a Mouse, and the weight of a Mouse is 0.007 times that amount.
(a.k.a. "House mouse", Mus musculus) (adult)
The weight of a mouse is typically an average of 5.40 fluid drams (ʒ). While most mice typically live two to three years, the Methuselah Mouse Prize — an award administered by a non-profit organization which advances aging-related research — was once awarded to a team of scientists whose research resulted in a mouse living just under five years.
It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as heavy as a Horse
In other words, 742 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.007 times the weight of a Horse, and the weight of a Horse is 140 times that amount.
(Equus ferus caballus) (Arabian, adult)
n Arabian riding horse (or similar breed) weighs between 110,000 fluid drams (ʒ). During races, horses must carry jockeys and their equipment, which in the Kentucky Derby, for example, can weigh up to 14,000 fluid drams (ʒ).
It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as heavy as a Grand Piano
In other words, 742 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.006 times the weight of a Grand Piano, and the weight of a Grand Piano is 160 times that amount.
(for Steinway & Sons, Model D Concert Grand Piano)
A Grand Piano, of the kind used for concert performances in large music halls, weighs 120,000 fluid drams (ʒ). Well-made pianos such as this may last 75 to 100 years.
It's about one-two-hundredth as heavy as a Polar Bear
In other words, 742 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.0056 times the weight of a Polar Bear, and the weight of a Polar Bear is 179 times that amount.
(Ursus maritimus) (adult, male)
An adult, male polar bear weighs between 133,000 fluid drams (ʒ). Polar bears are so heavily insulated by their 9.9 cm (3.9 in) layer of blubber that they are often difficult to detect using infrared photography sensors.
It's about one-two-hundredth as heavy as a Grizzly Bear
In other words, 742 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.0055 times the weight of a Grizzly Bear, and the weight of a Grizzly Bear is 181 times that amount.
(a.k.a. brown bear, a.k.a. silver bear, Ursus arctos horribilis) (Adult, male, coastal area population average)
An adult, male grizzly bear from a coastal area (where food is plentiful) can weigh up to 134,000 fluid drams (ʒ). In spite of their tremendous size, grizzly bears can run at speeds of up to 55 kph (34 mph).
It's about 200 times as heavy as a Compact disc
In other words, 742 fluid drams (ʒ) is 190 times the weight of a Compact disc, and the weight of a Compact disc is 0.005 times that amount.
(a.k.a. CD)
A compact disc typically weighs 3.90 fluid drams (ʒ). Data is stored on CDs by encoding into the track a series of tiny pits — each between 3.5 and 850 µm (0.00014 and 0.033 in) in length.
It's about one-two-hundred-fiftieth as heavy as a Cow
In other words, 742 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.004 times the weight of a Cow, and the weight of a Cow is 240 times that amount.
(for Holstein, a.k.a. Holstein Friesian, a.k.a. Friesian, Bos primigenius) (adult, heifer)
A mature Holstein cow (the well-known black-and-white, spotted breed of cow) typically weighs 170,000 fluid drams (ʒ). President William Howard Taft (1909 - 1913) kept a Holstein cow named Pauline Wayne on the White House grounds — a gift from a Wisconsin senator and the source of the First Family's milk.
